Willie Nelson Should Sing for Court, Says Prosecutor
A Texas prosecutor says Willie Nelson can resolve marijuana possession charges by agreeing to plead guilty, pay a fine - and sing "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" for the court.
County Attorney Kit Bramblett says he recommended the penalties to Hudspeth County's judge Becky Dean-Walker. Bramblett says the judge specifically demanded Nelson appear in court instead of pleading by mail, which is a common procedure in such cases.
Bramblett has told The Associated Press that the judge "wants to meet Willie."
Dean-Walker didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Tuesday.
Nelson was arrested Nov. 26 for marijuana possession at a Border Patrol checkpoint after an agent smelled an odor coming from his vehicle and decided to conduct a search.
Nelson's spokeswoman has declined to comment on Bramblett's sentencing suggestion.
